A Review of Coffee Around the World

Jul 19, 2008
Coffee from around the world has its own unique flavors. The climate, growing conditions and even the way the beans are roasted differ from country to country and that all makes for a different tasting coffee. Here is a look at the different coffees that can be found around the world. It can help to understand these differences so you can choose a coffee that best suits your taste based upon the country of origin.

Brazil

Brazil makes some world famous coffee and it is no surprise. Brazil is the largest coffee producing country in the world. It is not always seen as the best, though. The Brazil Bourbon Santos coffee is catching on and is a superb blend. It comes from an island called Reunion. It is aromatic and has a good balance of bitter acid and a dark body.

America

Coffee is not grown in the Unites States, but there are some blends that are uniquely American in style. They are made to be enjoyed with breakfast and compliment the meal instead of overpowering it. They are medium roasts with medium ground beans from Columbia or Central America. It is a smooth taste with light acid and a delicate body. There are fruity versions and sweet chocolate blends, too.

Ethiopia

This is considered the birthplace of coffee. It is known for a fine brew. The dark coffee is some of the darkest made in the world. It is bold in flavor. One such coffee is the Coffee Klatch from Yirgacheffe. These are made from dry roasted beans that are grown in very sunny areas. This are also produces a delicate espresso. Belle Espresso is a blend from five different regions in the area and has a complex taste that is very interesting.

Nicaragua

In this Central American country is a powerful world coffee producer. With a very mixed flavor with a range of tastes and a full body it is hard to resist. Terroir Coffee is the main producer in this area.

Panama

Here you will find the perfect French press. The trees in the Boquete region produce a flowery and fruity blend that has light acid and a smooth taste.

Hawaii

The only place in the United States to produce coffee, this island will produce a smooth and full flavored blend with good balance. Most coffee here is known for being a favorite to drink straight.

Sumatra

This is a unique coffee. It is a very interesting flavor that just does not suit everyone. It is rather tart that either come off as a compliment or a turn off. There are hints of chocolate with a medium body that is often sweeter than the average coffee. The aroma is rather thick and strong and brings to mind the region form which it came.

No matter where you choose to get your coffee you are sure in for a tasty, unique treat from the region of choice.
